FARGO – Carson Wentz spent part of the last 24 hours changing his Twitter account characteristics. He announced he landed a new job (quarterback, Philadelphia Eagles) and threw out messages of encouragement to former teammates looking to get a job in the large company he now works for.

FARGO—Wait a minute, that's not Carson Wentz. That's Brock Jensen.

A hot mic on NFL Network commentators led to an off-camera comment that targeted the Cleveland Browns and perhaps either Carson Wentz or Wisconsin's Joel Stave. Stave was ready to run his 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine on Saturday and was on screen before the shot focused in on a man in the crowd. Stave is not seen running. With the shot still on the man in the crowd, a NFL Network commentator says "Here we go, as I texted this morning, is the next former Browns quarterback about to hit the field."
